Item description for Ciudad Veintisiete/the Twenty-seventh City by Jonathan Franzen...

St. Louis, Missouri, is a quietly dying river city until it hires a new police chief: a charismatic young woman from Bombay, India, named S. Jammu. No sooner Jammu gets settled, the city's leading citizens become embroiled in an all-pervasive political conspiracy.

Description in Spanish:

En esta novela desbordante aparecen, amparados bajo la larga sombra del omnipresente Gateway Arch de St. Louis, una larga serie de personajes que conspiran, negocian, asesinan o roban, pero tambin aman, engaan, discuten con sus hijos, cometen adulterio, sufren los problemas y desengaos de las sociedades opulentas, construyen familias y vidas y no saben que todos y cada uno de ellos son marionetas en manos de un dios desconocido.

A una polvorienta y decadente St. Louis llega la nueva jefa de polica, Susan Jammu, quien tiene dos peculiaridades: ser mujer y venir de La India. Su presencia en la ciudad coincide con el inicio de acontecimientos extraordinarios: atentados terroristas, secuestros, muertes, especulacin inmobiliaria, pequeos terremotos polticos. Se enfrenta la ciudad a una conspiracin hind?.

Novela de espas, de detectives, pero tambin novela poltica que atiende de modo detallado a la sustancia econmica de la vida moderna y, sobre todo, novela que radiografa el modo de vida americano, no desde la facilidad de la sociologa y el periodismo, sino con la profundidad del conocimiento reposado, con el arma que slo la gran literatura proporciona. Ciudad veintisiete es un caleidoscopio que desvela ante los ojos maravillados del lector.
